Do you want bigger quads? Try sissy squats!

Categories: Videos & podcasts


Ladies and gentlemen, do you want bigger quads?
Do you want to make Tom Platz look like he has chicken legs?
Then try these machine sissy squats. This exercise is effectively a hybrid between leg extensions and squats. The main benefit is that it allows for full range of motion for the quads. So get low. Keep your torso vertical to standardize the movement and emphasize the quads instead of the posterior chain.
This exercise works best for high repetitions – if you’re strong enough. Because this is not an easy exercise. If you’re a real badass, you can add weight in the form of a dumbbell.
you train in a home gym, a sissy squat apparatus is a really cost effective investment compared to a leg extension machine. Enjoy the quad gains.
